Amelia Frances Wood West Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Amelia Frances Wood is a British artist living and working in the UK. A multidisciplinary artist, Woods practice focuses on an exploration through different materials. Manipulating matter to create strange and surreal artworks layered with references to the body, design, projections of the mind and merging with the mundane the artwork is looking at us as much as we look at it.
Woods tactile approach offers a personal and raw path to the ‘unsugared’ work, revealing the seams of construction and the visible hand of the maker. Using sculpture, textile, drawing and symbolic objects Wood creates a performative platform, using the audience to interrupt the work by becoming a part of it. The viewers participation of looking and positioning in space in relevance to the work, is used in Woods work to disrupt and control the movement of the audience around the space, whilst using static anthropomorphic forms that tempt to lick shout or spit on the viewer.
